the menu was good, service was too. Thought it was pricey for breakfast and lunch. Had a good selection. If you don't have a car, and stay at the Fairmont, you don't have a lot fo choices where to eat breakfast and lunch

Yes, this place is pricey for breakfast. The interior is not fancy. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. This the only place that we have ever had lemon pancakes ($13), and they are good. I had the eggs benedicts ($18) and they were nothing to write home about...rather bland. The coffee was very good ($4). When we are in... More

My husband and I wanted a good breakfast spot near our hotel, the fairmont. We were very disappointed. The atmosphere wasn't anything special and the food was ridiculously priced for breakfast. Most meals were $17-$25. A side of two scrambled eggs was $8! We could find better in Sonoma!

We enjoyed a quick and casual breakfast at Big 3. WE asked for a table for 7 but most people did not show up. The staff set the table but when we learned that there would only be three of us they did not hesitate to be very accommodating which was extremely nice of them. The restaurant decor is nothing...

We had breakfast here twice We also ended up having Thanksgiving dinner here because the buffet in the hotel was sold out. Breakfast was very good. I had Eggs Benedict the first morning and the Big 3 breakfast the second. The Eggs Benedict was one of the best I have had ever. The poached eggs were just a tad too... More

Ate here for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Busy, but seated quickly. Had chilliquilles and huevos rancheros. Kind of a deconstructed version, so not what you typically think of dish. Fresh, good, but not that hangover yummy spicy Mexican that you might be craving.
